You can meditate anywhere. You can listen to music and pay attention to your breathing while sitting on a park bench. Another option is taking a yoga class that is focused on meditation and is guided by an instructor. If you’re really struggling, just take 5 minutes somewhere and count your inhales and exhales using “one, two”. This forces you to focus on one (inhale) and two (exhale). Keep repeating one and two in your mind. I found doing this very helpful when I first began meditating. Also, it’s okay to not be focused every time you mediate. Just making the effort to meditate is a huge win in and of itself. Good luck!
- Do you prefer to sit when meditating or do something else (lie down, walk, etc)?
- Do you prefer to sit on a pillow or chair when doing a seated meditation?
- I find it very difficult to start my morning habit and to carry on to the end. Today it is 2 o’clock in the afternoon and I have just now finished everything in my morning routine. And that’s another day shot. Does anyone else have this problem?How do I get started earlier in the morning, and not keep stopping and wandering off and doing other things?
- How should I be breathing while I meditate?
- What kind of meditation has been fruitful for you?
Yes. We must observe ourselves and notice the moments where we find ourselves more in tune or connected. A walk alone in nature might bring a feeling of joy and presence. Journaling with no restrictions might awaken thoughts we usually don’t think about. Deep breaths while driving or doing activities that don’t require over thinking. Painting, drawing, watering the plants could potentially get us into a meditative state.
I'm a "Fabulous" user, just like you, so I can't change anything about the app. I think you might have sent your question to the wrong place, but I wish you the best!
Of course there are more options. If Fabulous does not have what you desire, the internet is fullnif meditation options. Google "meditation ideas" or "meditation resources" and select what interests you. There are 31 Proverbs in the Bible, I enjoy reading 1 Proverb per day. There are 150 Psalms in the Bible and I read 5 Psalms a day. The Jewish wisdom books can easily be read and learned from daily and completed monthly.
For me it just giving my brain a break. No over think, day dreaming, stressing over things I cant change. I love the beach, listening to the waves, watching the sun set. Just get there and relax, enjoy what you love and give your mind some time
- What are the advantages you see with meditation in a group?
- I wonder if there are others who have trouble visualizing, while meditating? Is yes, can you do it now? If yes, what did you do that allowed you to visualize? I am so frustrated! TIA.
- It’s so easy to stop meditating and not get back into it. How do I persist with my practice even when it seems like I don’t have time or patience for it?
- Does anyone use a candle when they meditate?
- Does anybody use a meditation pillow? And do you meditate first thing in the morning or later?
- How long before you feel that meditation is working?
- What is your practice like? Do you ever find yourself avoiding meditation?
- Why do you choose to meditate? Is it because of how it makes you feel?
- Is better if you meditate with more people?
- How long do you usually meditate and what’s in your mind when meditating? How efficiently keep concentrating?
